My 14 year old son was hit during a soccer game and fractured his bipartite medial sesamoid in his right foot. They are still in the same two pieces but considered fractured from each other.
We know he naturally has bipartite sesamoid a due to an unrelated X-ray 3 years earlier.
He was in a boot for 4.5 weeks but is now in a tennis shoe w custom orthotics.
We are supposed to wait 4 more weeks.
This is a unique injury, and I pray I am doing the right things.
He is resting for the most part. He says he is not in pain in his shoe or if any at a low level.
I would fly to California or anywhere to help him.
You are an expert on these injuries so any advice is appreciated.
He is eating healthy. Vitamin c, calcium, magnesium for calcium absorption, etc.
Should I be icing his foot or anything if he seems to be resting calmly.
